As to which boards have the fastest bases? IME Bataleon TBT bases are the fastest. Not because of material but because of the camber+TBT. Almost no drag in the snow=straightline rocket.
Are you serious? You go ride a board that hasn't been waxed in weeks and then compare that to a freshly waxed board. WAXING MAKES A DIFFERENCE.
DUH.
